    Only gone and done it! My TCA journey

    Well what can I say. I'm absolutely delighted that that's it all complete and done with! A sense of relief! I don't think it helped that I worked myself up about it all. Super happy now! For me that's the hard bit over - fun bit is the peeling process.

    Soo I used 15% MUAC TCA. This is my first ever TCA. I applied the first layer with a cotton pad and then I used a q-tip to target a couple of areas. The only bits that frosted were the q-tip areas, left it on for five minutes and at that point I thought stuff it! - I'm going to apply a second layer for maximum results. I left this on for just over four minutes.


    HOLY MOTHER OF GOD! WOWEEEEE burney burney!! Oh my goodness IT BETTER BE WORTH IT!! hahaha. The first layer in my opinion wasn't all that bad - here's me thinking what all the fuss is about but different story for the second layer that I can't even explain!! So intense I had to walk about flapping my hands in my face. ( I had no fan oopsie )


    Frosted much better with this second layer so fingers crossed il peel nicely. Will keep updating. Any questions fire away.

    Awwhh you just made my Christmas much brighter I told you.....or should I say, I warned you . @Neom , use a brush next time, you will save so much product this way, your cotton and q-tip soak up solution, using a brush nothing is wasted.

    Cant wait to hear how things turn out for you

    LOL

    Yes will do. I was going to buy a new one but totally forgot. Still a bit pink so I'm lathered up on Neosporin. I've got a tightening effect which feels great - now I know what to expect after a facelift lol

    What kind of skin do you have. Is it sensitive? I've only used Mandelic Acid and I wanted to up the ante but I worry TCA may be too much for my sensitive skin.

    Nope, just a YPO. No skipping and jumping with that. Just itching lol.
    But I am curious about trying the TCA.

    Right?! when the time comes we can go together

    I am usually pink the next day as well. That should go away by tomorrow. Keep neosporin on any areas that remain pink though. By day 3 you should see some peeling

    I would say a combination type skin. You could maybe consider a lower % perhaps?
